Food for Fertility: A Group Program for PCOS

I had the pleasure of interviewing Judy Simon, MS, RD,CD, CHES a dietitian and fertility nutrition expert at Mind-Body-Nutrition in Seattle, WA about her novel Food for Fertility Program. Judy is the chair of the American Society Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) NutriSig group. Judy created this 7 week program to help her patients who struggle with infertility by providing support, resources, and nutrition education to women.

The Best Pesto Recipe

I first fell in love with pesto when I was backpacking in the Liguria section of Italy (just south of Genoa on the Mediterranean). As I was hiking between the towns of Cinque Terre, I spotted (and smelled!) someone eating linguini with pesto and I had to stop and try it. It was love at first bite! At least once a summer, I make a large batch of pesto out of the basil I grow and freeze it to use all year. I love pesto for both its health benefits and its versatility. This pesto recipe is the best because it uses omega-3 rich walnuts and olive oil to give the perfect taste. Mangia!

It’s also easy on the joints and best of all-you don’t have to sweat.

Every year my family and I look forward to our vacation in Northern Michigan: long days, cool nights, clear blue water, and cherries. That’s right, cherries! Traverse City, Michigan boasts itself as being the Cherry Capital of the World and it’s no surprise. Situated on a peninsula at the 35th parallel, thousands of cherry trees grow fantastically well (along with wine grapes and peaches) with the optimal moisture, soil and temperatures from both the East and West Grand Traverse Bays. There is nothing like biking along the bay and stopping to pick and eat cherries.
